Enjoying the Summer and My Yard!!

The summer is upon us and we have been spending lots of time outdoors working on our yard. We purchased a new gazebo to place on our the near future we plan on building a gazebo, this is just a quick fix for now. I spend many hours out here especially now that I have high speed wireless internet.

The flower beds are all ready for the annuals and the weeds all cleaned out and beautiful red cedar mulch added, thanks to my hubby... he did most of it!

There is one small bed at the front of the house that needs a few plants and the mulch.

I love the huge maple trees with all the leaves out and the mulch around so much in the fall when the leaves fall off.

The grass is so nice now that it is a beautiful green. Hubby did not think so and did a bit of seeding, he loves it nice and thick and green.

We have been cutting the dead wood away from the tree line... some we saved for firewood and some we burnt in a pit my brother dug us with the backhoe.

What a lovely yard, Mona. I can see why you enjoy sitting outdoors - especially in the gazebo - away from bugs, etc. :). I once had a house with a screen porch -- and absolutely LOVED it. My small deck is OK, but I get dive-bombed by the wasps sometimes.... so wish it was screened in.

Your yard is beautiful Mona! Now I can picture where you are when you're out in the gazebo!

Beautiful yard Mona & I know what you mean about the maples. They are always last to lose their leaves and by then its so cold outside.
